Returning WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan was Saudi Arabian Crown Jewel's official host.

After opening the show to an ovation from the Saudi audience, an ecstatic Hogan said, 'The Power of Hulkamania and the power of my Hulkamaniacs are stronger than ever right here at the Crown Jewel. It's great to see you guys. It's awesome to be back here in the WWE.'

The adrenaline was palpable and got people involved. It sometimes makes people wonder whether the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) is fake.

But there is no doubt that the entertainment is pure and the wrestlers give sheer performance.

Take a look at these pictures and relive the joy of Wrestling!
